Tonight I was listening to the Savage Nation and Mike was playing exerpts of Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein's speeches on the Senate Floor. They've been discussing the "Financial Markets Bill" and Boxer was talking about how thrilled she is that they're including $100 billion for mental health care, tax breaks, aid to rural schools (latter added by republicans)....... Then you've got Dianne Feinstein talking about high speed rail for the state of California being included in the bill, as well as a prohibition on cell phones on trains...and a bunch of other crap.
Feinstein said her office received 91,000 phone calls and emails from her state of California and 85,000 of them were opposed to the measure, but that there is a great deal of confusion, and people don't understand.
Don't understand? Well no wonder, when this is supposed to bail out Wall Street so Main Street (I hate that phrase) can start moving again, and we're throwing in money for mental health care, a high speed rail for the state of California, aid to rural schools, and all this other crap.
Yeah the people don't understand what all this SHIT (aka pork) has to do with the bailout or the ailing economy.
Yeah Barbara why don't you explain it to us since we're so friggin stupid.
